Pendine (Welsh: Pentywyn) is a village in Carmarthenshire, Wales, lying on Carmarthen Bay.

History
The seaside resort is best known for Pendine Sands, where Malcolm Campbell and J.G. Parry-Thomas set the world land speed record five times between 1924 and 1927. Parry-Thomas was killed while making a final record-breaking attempt on Pendine Sands in 1927.

Places of interest
The village is home to the Pendine Museum of Speed which houses Parry-Thomas' restored car Babs. The museum is only open at specified times.

Other information
On some occasions, part of the beach is used by the army for firing practice.

Although the BBC show Top Gear have test driven on Pendine Sands, cars are no longer allowed on the beach.

The Camarthenshire Land Sailing Club is allowed to use the beach for wind traction activities, including Land sailing, kite buggying and Kite landboarding.

Pendine (a contraction of Pen-Tywyn) - From 'A Topographical Dictionary of Wales' (1849)
PENDINE (a contraction of PEN-TYWYN), a parish, in the union of Narberth, Higher division of the hundred of Derllŷs, county of Carmarthen, South Wales, 5 miles (W. by S.) from Laugharne; containing 204 inhabitants. This parish is beautifully situated on the shore of Carmarthen bay, by which it is bounded on the south, and over which it commands a fine prospect. It is bounded on the north by the parish of Eglwys-Cummin, on the east by that of Laugharne, and on the west by that of Marros; and comprises 963 acres, the whole, with the exception of a common of 100 acres affording good pasturage, inclosed and in a state of cultivation. The soil is of a clayey and sandy quality, producing wheat and barley; the surface is rocky and hilly. On the beach, which is well adapted for the purpose of sea-bathing, and affords a pleasing walk, is a natural cavern, whence issues a small rivulet running into the bay. The living is a rectory not in charge, annexed to the living of Llandawke: the tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of 67. The church, which is pleasantly situated, is a plain structure, erected about forty years since, and measuring thirty-four feet long by sixteen broad; the sittings are all free, except about six pews, that are attached to the farms of the parish. There is a place of worship for dissenters, in which a Sunday school is likewise held.
